Her early artistic career was filled with landscape oils and gouache caricatures, mediums she still enjoys, but which have made room for a passionate affair with vibrant pencil, pastel and ink. She loves to draw people, plants and animals, has had several pieces purchased by the National Zoo and is working towards a personal exhibition of cultural female portraits.
